Channel 292 3955 AM 0130 UTC 2 May 2020
« on: May 02, 2020, 1039 UTC »
Caught this while doing a band scan during a bout of sleeplessness ...
 
0130 documentary about offshore radio - identified as "Pop with the Pirates" at end, with "We Love the Pirate" song.
0150 Channel 292 Id (but wrong frequency mentioned), promo for "reliving the offshore era on Channel 292"
0155 Time Is Tight - Booker T & MGs
0159 Channel 292 Id / promo
0200 Hot Radio Id > unid edm music
0207 Hot Radio Id > next music

SINPO was about 33333 direct but better via Weston SDR

Guessing the docu / C292 ids were an old show, maybe the "Hot Radio" was a replay / relay as well?

Assuming Euro based on signal strength although seems a strange time for a euro broadcast  (can't have had a big audience), so maybe a test ?

Hi !

Since May 1st, 2020 Channel 292 from Rohrbach, Germany has a license for 3955 kHz. During times without selled airtime, old offshore material is broadcasted.

Thanks ... that new frequency for C292 slipped past me (and hasn't made it to Shortwave.info or the schedule app on my phone).

Mod: please move to more appropriate forum section.

From the Channel 292 site,
a few transmissions are scheduled on 3955  (UTC time and date!)

--- Friday 01 May :
1900 Encore classical music
--- Saturday 02 May :
0000 Radio Waves Int. (French former pirate op.)
1900 SM Radio Dessau
--- Sunday 03 May
0000 Radio Waves Int.
1700 Korches Radio
1900 DARC (German hams)
2100 Encore Classical music

The schedule is crossed by the transmissions from Wooferton :
0500 to 0600, and 2000 to 2100

The following weeks have the same hours for RWI, Encore and DARC,
then with different other times and stations (but not more hours).
So outside of those scheduled hours, the station can broadcast any old show,
or maybe soon Brother Stair ?

I will leave that here for a few days, till anyone has seen it. Usually, the small stations with really regular schedules are not reported in this forum, but I don't know if Shortwave Broadcasting is a better place, specially for programmes issued from the offshore or free radio spirit.
